New car!!

August 9/11.

Today is an anniversary for me. 35 years ago, on August 9, 1976, I started my first full-time job as City Hall reporter at CFTR Radio (now 680 News). For whatever reason, August 9th, is forever unforgettable. If news director Robert Holiday hadn't hired me, where would I have been? Wouldn't have had a job, career, Sam, Kate, Max, life, nothin'.

Cut, print, moving on! (to quote Jim Carrey again, from The Grinch).
OK then. That being said - moving on, to 35 years later!

Also today, had to go with Sam in the pouring rain, to return my blue Subaru. The four-year lease is over as of today. So, goodbye cute little car. Loved driving you! LOL. Loved your colour, the CD system, the radio stations, the spacious trunk, the front seats, the back seat, and on and on.

In exchange? A brand NEW leased manual Subaru, in black!

Managed to fill out all the paperwork with Sam, drive the new car home (nervously), deal with raging, outta-control Intensity Entity and bring the car smack dab to the front of our house. Pretty damn good!

Tried modelling the recently-acquired size zero dress in front of the new car. Let 'er rip! Already listened to Bryn Chrisophter on the way home. (Great, as ever).

Can't wait to buzz around town with my new wheels! Look OUT!!

Not much else to report today, but that's enough for me!! A new car is pretty friggin' exciting!

Very good choice, Elaine! I’m sure you won’t regret sticking to your brand of car. And don’t worry! I am sure you will continue to enjoy the great entertainment system with your new Subaru. Besides, the most recent models of Subaru, those dating from 2011 up to the present, have wireless stereo headphones, and are iPod and MP3 audio compatible.

I’m pretty sure you’re having the time of your life cruising in your black Subaru, Elaine! You won’t get ‘car sick’ either, since you’re already used to driving the type. Although they make improvements year by year, I’m certain you can handle it. Way to go!

You look gorgeous in that dress, Elaine! I love how you posed behind your black Subaru! It’s not just you who shined in this photo, but your car as well. :’)
